Alki Art Fair is located on Alki Beach in West Seattle with the amazing backdrop ranging from the Space Needle to the Olympic mountains.
More than 8,000 people a day attend Alki Art Fair – it is a great place for your band to get open air crowd notice, advertise future performances, and meet new fans. Typically we have over 40 bands/performances that at the Fair from 10AM to 9PM Saturday and 10AM to 6PM Sunday.
We provide volunteer assistance with setup and tear-down for each act.
Alki Art Fair provides compensation of $50 per act. We also support you in other ways, including a break room with snacks and drinks, a very visible merchandise table area for your CDs and T-shirts and a place for your sign-up sheets.
About the stages
We have three stages:
- Two stages by Alki Bathhouse – One large stage for 4-piece and larger groups and an adjacent medium stage for acts up to three musicians
- One small stage located along the beach boardwalk at roughly 63rd Ave SW
Large stage performances are 45 minute sets and medium stage performances are 30 minute sets. For both the large and medium stages, we provide standard performance PA equipment including mixers, instrument and vocal microphones, microphone stands, cables, and performer monitors and main speakers. The large stage includes drummer monitor, the medium stage does not.
Small stage performances are 60 minutes. The small stage provides a self-powered PA with self-powered mixer and microphones but no monitors.
